Who took my heart?


I touch my face, ‘tis perfectly alright

I feel my nose’s length and my ear’s height

My nails are bit longer, or its okay

And my blood is busy with a foray

I suppose that everything is in place

Yet, something is missing and that’s the case

I’m feeling like I’m leading from the rear

My God! It’s my heartbeat and it’s not there!


He had tiptoed mutely into my dreams

I was on a bench with my girl it seems

Giving her a rose pack, my arms athwart;

When he took it and fled; it held my heart,

Because it was no more than a naive dream

Like a humane human, I let him stream

Out of my dream, and when I awakened

I found my heart truly gone; my blood drained  


I am in pursuit, in search of the guy,

Around the world, every bosom I pry

Searching for the one enjoying two hearts:

“It’s very prized, neither nines nor carats

Can measure its worth”, I tell every one.

I detain a suspect; he has a gun

Which I don’t notice, “The heart or this knife,”

He shows me the gun, “Your money or your life.”


At last, after all the labor and toil

And all the salt drops that fall on the soil

I give up the search, when out of the blue

Like from a cannon mouth, a firefly flew

I find my heart with that forgotten girl

Who was my last love, my previous pearl

And then I realize, I’m in the wrong

It was she who taught me love; made me strong


Not my present girl; yes I’ve come to know

This forged love is all but a pomp and show

‘twas the thief of my dream- I owe him one-

Who lured me from my wrong; for whom I won

Thus ends the tragedy of a lost heart

All of which, from a painful part did start

And ended there, with the reunion-

Most incredibly- of the moon and sun.

  • Cheeky Missy

    Indeed! I like it VERY well,....excepting for taking the Lord's name in vain in the first words of the last line of the first stanza. Delightfully depicted, so wonderfully sweetly concluding, I quite enjoyed it!

      Sorry it took me so long to check out your own "who took my heart".
      Oh but wow, it's so nicely written! Very cute! I especially adore how you took a literal sense to stealing someone's heart 🙂
